Manhattan Is An Island
Installation at the Reina Sofia Museum, Madrid
November 2006 - April 2007

From ART IN AMERICA, "When Video Was Young" by Joseph Jacobs, May 2007, article (page 120):

"Ira Schneider's 1974/2006 Manhattan is an Island was one example" (of the surpises). "On 23 monitors mounted on unusually tall pedestals of varying heights, suggesting skyscrapers and evoking Manhattan, Schneider presented black-and-white video footage of people moving about he city, capturing the ceaseless intensity of life on the sidewalks and streets."
